Arsenal fans in the Football Transfer Tavern should look away now after our landlord told us of the claim coming from the Daily Star and quotes from Cesc Fabregas.
The Emirates Stadium faithful are not really over the move Cesc made from Barcelona to Chelsea and it seems that things may be about to get a little bit worse.
As one of our punters notes, one of the only things that Arsenal fans dislike more than their former traitors is Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho, so to hear that it was the Blues boss who really made the Fabregas transfer happen is not exactly ideal.
The Gunners are also trying to deal with the fact that Bacary Sagna has defected to Manchester City and the future of Thomas Vermaelen is up in the air – not to mention the fact they have signed approximately no one this summer so far.
For Chelsea fans however, to hear the comments from Fabregas will be a welcome relief with doubts over the player’s relationship with Mourinho.
Cesc claimed: “I looked at all the big clubs in England, where I wanted to return, and I spoke with José Mourinho who very quickly told me what I wanted to hear.
“He won me over and convinced me, it was all very quick and I am very happy.
“I hope that all goes well now in this new stage of my career.”
Chelsea fans. Do you think that the fact Mourinho was the one to convince Cesc to come to England will make a massive difference in how the player settles into life at Chelsea? Let us know your thoughts below.
